Does anyone know what this is, please? Seen on a common in Hampshire today. Thank you.

There's loads of red around, Julie, but I don't think I've seen the white before.

I'm not sure this is S. latifolia. It looks more like S. dioca var. alba.
S. latifolia petals are more deeply notched than S.dioca.
The attached images were taken in Cornwall, with both S. dioca and S. latifolia growing together. There were also some hybrids amongst the mix. Silene latifolia (White Campion)  01 (small).jpg Silene dioca (Red Campion)  03 (small).jpg Silene latifolia (White Campion)  02 (small).jpg
